Other Name: 6-allyl-n-[3-(dimethylamino)propyl]-n-(ethylcarbamoyl)ergoline-8-carboxamide; Cabaser; Dostine
Chemical Properties: White Crystalline Solid.
Uses: A dopamine D2-receptor agonist. receptor stimulant
Definition : An N-acylurea that is (8R)-ergoline-8-carboxamide in which the hydrogen attached to the piperidine nitrogen (position 6) is substituted by an allyl group and the hydrogens attached to the carboxamide nitrogen are substit ted by a 3-(dimethylamino)propyl group and an N-ethylcarbamoyl group.

Biological Activity: Selective D 2 -like dopamine receptor agonist (K i values are 0.7, 1.5, 9.0 and 165 nM for D 2 , D 3 , D 4 and D 5 receptors respectively) that also displays high affinity for several serotonin receptor subtypes (K i = 1.2-20.0 nM for 5-HT 1A , 5-HT 1D , 5-HT 2A and 5-HT 2B ). Inhibits secretion of prolactin and growth hormone and reverses levodopa-induced dyskinesias in Parkinsonian monkeys.
